Very good...but...

No Bounce
Shrinks
I have always had to wear 2 sports bras at once but with this one it does the job on its own. It's a very good sports bra, once you've got it on.
The back catch is fiddly, but works well once you've got the hang of it. I also find that sometimes the shoulder straps slip out of their (adjustable) fastenings.
My main problem with it, is that after I'd worn and washed it a couple of times I began to feel that it had shrunk as it was getting very tight. Then I checked the washing instructions and it's not supposed to be tumble dried. (I had tumbled it twice by then).
I know that I should have checked first, but I really always expect underwear to be able to go in the dryer for a quick turnaround.
Very good sports bra, but be careful when you wash it.

not as good as the B109

Shock Absorbers are always good quality
doesn't feel as supportive as the 109, I tried one and definitely got more 'bounce'! - not easy to fasten also didn't think on a long run it would be that comfortable as the back fastener in the middle is plastic and I think this would sweat against the skin on a warm day
I am sticking with the B109

Not very good!

I liked the open back for ventilation. I liked the strap positioning.
Fit. I am normally a 32FF, which they don't make. I tried the 32F but it was too tight under the bust and the cups were too small. I bought the 34 F. It felt OK in the shop when I was jumping up and down in the fitting room. However when I went for a run I felt wobbly. I had to hide behind a van half way through to tighten the back strap!
I normally wear Enell sports bras which give a huge amount of support and there is little or no movement. I am possibly too used this and so felt uncomfortable. I would not recommend this bra to other 32FF's out there. I might wear the shock absorber for lower impact activities.

Best Bra I've Tried

Great bounce control and super comfy fit
None, I don't have an issue with the shoulder clasp myself, perhaps I have stretchy arms!
The best sports bra I've tried to date, with 34E chest that's a real result!
